Friends of Hagerman NWR Foundation is a 501(c)(3) corporation whose mission is to instill reverence, respect and conservation of our wild creatures and habitats through supporting environmental education, recreational activities, and programs of Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.




The Alligator Sanpping Turlte will be the topic at Hagerman NWR's Second Saturday on July 14. According to National Geographic, the prehistoric-looking alligator snapping turtle is the largest freshwater turtle in North America and among the largest in the world. With its spiked shell, beak-like jaws, and thick, scaled tail, this species is often referred to as the "dinosaur of the turtle world." Learn more about this long-lived denizen of the southeast US, from speaker Aaron White, Tishomingo NWR.


Second Saturday presentations are free and open to the public - recommended for age 12 - adult. No reservations are needed. Programs begin at 10 am.
